With the nick-breaking technology Marbach has brought to the market – already in autumn 2016 – a solution that optimizes the blanking of very small blanks with a double knife. Since then, many customers have employed this new Marbach technology.
In nick-breaking tools, the punches in the male blanker are replaced by special pins. These are positioned in such a way that the nicks can be separated specifically and in a controlled manner. So the ups fall down vertically without twisting or tilting.
Head of Business development at Marbach, Jan Brunner: “Special application scenarios during die-cutting very small blanks with double knife have sometimes caused problems in the past. During the last months customers with such jobs have used the new nick-breaking technology. The results achieved have been positive overall. The customers are well satisfied. They report a significant reduction of machine stops – even with higher speeds. The blanks can be separated and stacked safely. The productivity increases significantly.”
Due to excellent results, Marbach will now offer its new technology to customers as a standard solution for small blanks with double knife.

Since Marbach has restructured its division „Materials for the production of cutting-dies“ and has recently been renamed Marbach Die Supplies, the positive market acceptance has been very well received at Marbach. The extended portfolio has generated a positive mood with Marbach customers. Because as one of the main material suppliers in Germany, Marbach is the only company that is able to test its products in advance in its own production units and on the in-house die-cutting machine.
There are many different possibilities to refine packaging and to upgrade them for the POS. De- and embossing in 2D or 3D, hotfoil, pure edge or reverse cutting. But there are also sophisticated creases, for example many creases close to each other, make something special out of packaging. We offer our customers the right solution for every requirement with our tools and technologies. For extraordinary packaging at the POS. That is not only a visual but also a haptic experience for the consumers.
Customers of Marbach rely more and more on the application of steel counter plates as a counter-die. This development comes as no surprise since demands on functionality and appearance of packaging blanks are continually increasing. The steel counter plate meets both criteria. The high quality of the creases that are created with it, leads to a very good functionality of folds. Moreover it eliminates the occurrence of marks on the blank.
The sixth technology forum of the European Diemakers Association (ESU) took place between the 15th and 16th of September in Luxembourg. Marbach was on-site as an exhibitor to present its newest innovations with its two divisions Automation & Service and Die Supplies.
